ActiveStor 16 & 18
Panasas® ActiveStor® is an advanced hybrid scale-out NAS solution designed to maximize mixed workload performance in technical computing environments. While ActiveStor has always been valued for its high throughput capability, ActiveStor also delivers strong small file and metadata performance by leveraging high capacity hard drives and Solid State Drives (SSDs) in the same system.
Based on a fifth-generation storage blade architecture, the Panasas PanFS® storage operating system, and the DirectFlow® parallel data access protocol for performance acceleration, ActiveStor greatly reduces time-to-results for technical and enterprise workflows while delivering the easy management and robust reliability demanded by industry and research organizations in the energy, government, life sciences, manufacturing, and media & entertainment markets.
